Did you know that the skin around the eyes is the thinnest and most sensitive on our face? For this reason, this region is usually the first to show signs of aging, fatigue, dark circles under the eyes, bags and even possible allergies, thus requiring specific care and products.
When washing your face, choose a mild or neutral soap that cleans without harming. Also, avoid causing friction in the area (this goes for any skincare product or makeup used in the area) and use only your fingertips on the skin, drying it with a soft, cotton face towel and pressing it lightly.
Speaking of friction, do not use exfoliants, makeup remover wipes and/or other abrasive products on this area. This can end up causing lesions on the skin, besides increasing sensitivity, causing flaking, redness, and possible allergies.
Far beyond the facial moisturizer, invest in a specific moisturizer for the eye area. This type of product is enriched with actives that can help reduce darker pigmentation in the region, restoring luminosity, in addition to protecting against sagging and fine lines of expression – all without irritating the skin. Eye products with antioxidants like Vitamins C and E are great options, for example.
Less is more, so don’t apply too much product to the eye area. A drop on each side is already great! As the skin in the area is very thin, with little product you ensure greater absorption. In addition, apply and spread the products using the ring finger, always working from the outside inwards, massaging in a circular fashion around the eyes to stimulate blood circulation.
In addition, you can include a more potent cream and treatment for the eye area in your night routine. They tend to have a thicker texture and are also rich in powerful actives that act in anti-aging skin, ensuring more firmness and smoothness to the skin.
No skipping sunscreen! This product is indispensable to protect the skin from UV rays and even from the light of electronic devices, thus avoiding skin cancer, photoaging, and even the appearance and worsening of spots.
So, how is your eye care routine going?
